I'm Going To Be, Um, Well, A Year Older

My birthday is in a couple of weeks.  I am going to be 39.  I seriously can not wrap my mind around that number.  Not because I am closing in on 40, but because I seriously do not feel that old.  Not that 39 is old.  I am just wondering why the years seem to be going by so much faster.  When I was in high school, time seemed to drag.  I couldn't wait to graduate, yet it seemed to take forever for that day to come. 

That day was 21 years ago. 

Now that I'm a mom, I like to focus on the kids' birthdays, and not mine.  We'll probably go out to eat, and have cake, but that's about it.  It's not like I am going to send out luau themed invitations.   Maybe next year, for the big 4-0, I'll have a party.  This year, I am going to let it slip on by quietly. 

But, that doesn't mean I don't want presents.  I love presents.  There are a couple of books I want, and I really need some silicone tipped tongs.  Oh, and you can never go wrong buying me an elephant.  I love those!

I'm going to be hitting 50 in a couple of year. I don't know wear time goes either. It seems like just the other day I was 30. I think once we have kid's time goes at a faster speed.
